Obama Blames Himself For Not Doing Better Selling Health Care Plan
President Obama is blaming himself for the public not embracing health care reform more enthusiastically. He spoke in the backyard of a private home in Virginia (pictured).
Obama ruefully told his listeners, “Sometimes I fault myself for not being able to make the case more clearly to the country.”
Still, he took on Republicans who want to repeal the law, daring them to tell that to a cancer patient covered by a new high-risk pool, or a parent whose child was able to get insurance despite a pre-existing health condition.
“It makes sense in terms of politics and polls,” Obama said of the GOP position. “It doesn’t make sense in terms of actually making people’s lives better.”
The push is on to clear up any misunderstandings about the plan just six weeks before the midterm elections. It’s a shame this effort didn’t begin much sooner.Click here for reuse options!
